India vs Australia 3rd T20: Match abandoned as teams share T20 trophy

It took close to 90 minutes of deliberating before the match was finally abandoned, leaving the series deadlocked. Despite eastern Hyderabad remaining dry during the match, it was the first to be called off.

India and Australia ended up sharing the T20I series honours after a wet outfield in Hyderabad ensure not a single ball was bowled in the series decider on Friday (October 13). Both the captains Virat Kohli and David Warner had a long chat with the umpires and the match officials in quest of a game but in vain.

With no reserve day in place, India and Australia will share the trophy.

The reason was a wet outfield. The match scheduled to begin at 7 pm is likely to be threatened by possible light to moderate showers as per weather forecasts.

The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear. It rained for an hour in the evening on Thursday, but curator YL Chandrasekhar had said they are confident of getting the field ready.


However, more than 29,000 spectators who came to watch the match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium had to go back without witnessing any cricket.

India won the rain-hit first T20I after overcoming Australia by nine-wickets in Ranchi.

The pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is usually good for batting and fans will be expecting a run feast after the low-scoring affair on a damp pitch in Guwahati. Henriques and Christian have played a lot of Indian Premier League (IPL) matches at this venue.

The hosts will heavily rely on their hard-hitting batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya.
